birthday banner give-away

 Did you notice this cute new banner we put up for our last couple birthdays? 
A very nice blog reader sent me that beauty as a gift.  

And I have the lucky opportunity to give one of them away.
I love the colors and the size and how it "parties up" our kitchen just right.  (She also has a bunch of other cute stuff you can check out here.)

To enter to win a birthday banner for yourself, leave a comment.

I'll announce the winner on Thursday morning.

  55. this very Saturday I'm throwing a surprise birthday party for my boyfriend and I'll make the banner myself... the cover is a 14th of July party (he's French) so the banner will be double-sided and we'll change it at the time of the cake! .... sorry it was this long! =)

  65. I would love to surprise my husband with this banner. We are newlyweds of less than 3 months and birthdays were never really celebrated in his home growing up. This would be a perfect small addition to the kitchen to start breaking him in for bigger celebrations in the future. A banner this year, perhaps I'll go for adding a cake next year. He's not used to attention on his special day and absolutely refuses evens cake. I would love to have this for him. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete

  96. I am a new follower to your blog and have enjoyed reading about your family. Infact, I have recently ordered two books that you recommended including one from your parents.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I have made several pendant banners and they are SO fun for any parties. I have to admit my birthday banner needs a make-over! I think this one is just the colorful fun banner I've been looking for! On another note: I've been a newer blog reader for just a short while (Once I purchased your parents book the Entitlement Trap and 5 Spiritual Solutions for Everyday Parenting- I heard about you) and I have to admit your "style" of parenting, mothering and loving is very contagious. I have come to recognize simple beauties in life (and mothering) more frequently now. Thank you for your inspiration and wisdom. My home is being blessed by your example.

    ReplyDelete
  118. That is such a cute banner.

    I was excited to see you were at Duke recently. I live near Raleigh. Duke is a great hospital. I recently had back surgery there and just love the place. Wish I could have met you while you were here.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I just love that banner - the colors/patterns are super fun but neutral enough to be used for my son or daughters! Sure beats the dollar store, paper variety, that I put up every year. No mother of the year award for me. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  130. L.O.V.E. it! I'd love it even more if it could be my very own!

By the way, I found your blog a couple years ago and loved it, but then couldn't find you again until you guest posted on Taza and Husband. So glad to find you again! Now that I'm a parent, I'm loving all of the book suggestions and parenting ideas. Thank you for sharing!
